ALL LIVES MATTER

ACRES OF DIAMONDS

ON ASSIGNMENT

HEAVENLY CHOICES

SATAN'S PLOT



THE MUSIC OF LIFE

MY MIRACLE

HOPE AND FAITH

CONFIDENCE IN CHRIST JESUS

Live-streaming

THE WONDERS OF HIS LOVE

SPIRITUAL THINGS

AIN'T NO ROCK

20/20 Vision

PROTECTING OUR BLINDSIDE

HE CHOOSE ME

SEEN AND LOVED BY GOD

TREASURE BOX

SETTLED OUT OF COURT

JESUS KNEW

BASKET OF EGGS

The AGONY AND THE ECSTACY

IT IS A MATTER OF THE HEART

BLIND MEN

STAY IN YOUR LANE

THE MESSIAH'S SEAT

THE SILENT CRY

THE SINFULNESS OF SIN

THE GLORY OF GOD

MORE THAN JUST A BABE

GOD'S GUARDIAN ANGELS

SHAME, OH SHAME, AMERICA

A Special Christmas Prayer 

 
 Lord, it’s with a grateful spirit
I kneel before Your Throne.
I’m so grateful for my country…
For every US flag that’s flown.
 
But tonight my heart is heavy…
 My thoughts drift here and there.
It’s Christmas time…when families
Do usually prepare
 
To spend this time together…
To gather ‘round the tree…
To open gifts and feast on foods…
Enjoy each other’s company.
 
But some households hold heartaches
Because daddies aren’t home.
They’re in some foreign country
Functioning ‘neath duty’s dome.
 
Some mommies aren’t baking
Christmas cookies with their kids,
Because they’re off protecting
What some fellowman forbids.
 
Yes, it’s right here in America!
Some protest the manger scene…
The FREEDOM to enjoy the birth
Of Jesus seems to mean
 
A fight to call it Christmas
Yet it’s not JUST a holiday.
And this happens while our soldiers
And our sailors are away
 
Defending us from enemies
Who threaten how we live.
Lord, we want to call this Christmas…
So please help us to forgive
 
The ones threating our FREEDOM
To honor God this way.
O, please protect our heritage…
In Jesus’ Name we pray.

Luke 2:14
“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth
 peace among those with whom he is pleased!”
